Call For Papers is a not-for-profit consortium of libre software projects and artists, companies, institutions, organizations, and hardware vendors using Linux kernel-based systems and allied libre software for audio-related work, with an emphasis on professional tools for the music, production, recording, and broadcast industries. The consortium aims to co-ordinate joint projects between members, collaborate on the promotion of Linux based systems for audio tasks, offer programs beneficial to members and subsequently its mission, and provide a single point of contact for prospective industry partners.

Organisations, institutions, companies, and projects of all sizes as well as individuals are involved in audio development on Linux kernel based platforms. Until the launch of, there has not been a formal organisation to assist and promote the development of this technology. takes its inspiration from the Open Source Development Lab, where Linux kernel development is co-ordinated, and the Consumer Electronics Linux Forum. Both of these organisations have attracted broad support from the leading companies in their respective fields.


For many years the UJM music department and CIEREC have developed teaching, research and production around electronic music and the use of digital technologies for musical and artistic creations. During the last ten years, we can mention the opening in 2011 of a specialized master for Computer Music Producers and in 2016 a new master for Computer Art Producers, the creation of several computer music classrooms, an auditorium, and two recording and mixing studios at the university. The University and the French National Agency for the Research have funded several research projects on DSP technology and on the development of Open-Source software, in partnership with GRAME.

In 2011, we have organized the JIM2011 (French-speaking computer music days) and several other international conferences have already been held during the last decade and have been published. So we have a rich experience in organizing and hosting international events.

Today, it seems to us important to focus on digital practices on free software, especially Open-Source tools that put together communities on common projects.

May 2017 is situated at the end of the semester, and we can therefore have many classrooms, amphitheaters to host the conferences, installations, demos, workshops and concerts.

Audience expected: students (in music, arts, DSP, computer science), musicians, researchers, developers….
